Who We Are
We are a not for profit, non-governmental organization (NGO) with focus on the preservation and promotion of Jamaica's rich music heritage.
Music Unites Jamaica Foundation (MUJF) seeks to expand the awareness of Jamaica's vast and long-standing musical heritage through the presentation of music workshops and free concerts island- wide, and by sourcing scholarships and instruments for talented students with financial constraints.
MUJF is committed to the research, preservation and promotion of the works of Jamaican composers of Classical, Patriotic, and Church music, as well music written for Theatre and Dance. The documentation of Jamaican jazz musicians and Inter-cultural exchange activities are also part of our mission.
Our aim is to make this your online launching point for information on the music of Jamaica outside of the genres of Folk and Popular Music. We intend to have links, biographical information and some sheet music available for scholars and lovers of Jamaican music who wish to learn more about this vast history of music which so far has been largely overlooked.
It is our vision to collaborate closely with all active stakeholders in music in Jamaica, such as UNESCO’s Creative Cities of Music Network, administrated by the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sports; the Ministry of Education; the Jamaica Reggae Industry Association (JARIA); the Philharmonic Orchestra of Jamaica (POJ); and the National Youth Orchestra of Jamaica (NYOJ).
